Fiber Free Insulation
Cerafoam® - High temperature insulation
Cerafoam®, ceramic foam board, is an innovative FIBER FREE, light weight, high temperature insulation with an excellent thermal performance. Cerafoam® has a high strength and high temperature resistance (up to 1.700 °C) in combination with a low density, low thermal conductivity and low permanent linear shrinkage. This makes the product extremely suitable for high temperature kiln and oven insulation in for example dental, laboratory, ceramic and industrial areas.
Cerafoam® is adapted to high temperature fields and all kinds of furnace atmospheres and applications under particular chemical circumstances. It combines the advantages from both light weight firebricks and fiber products. It has the strength of firebricks but also the low thermal conductivity of polycrystalline mullite fiber board. Cerafoam® is the best alternative to aluminosilicate ceramic fiber, polycrystalline mullite fiber and alumina fiber, firebrick and other high temperature insulation.
Cerafoam® is manufactured with the unique sol-gel method and is offered by Elicra, expert in electric heating elements and systems as well as high quality and durable furnace accessories and insulation materials.
FIBER FREE and environment friendly
Cerafoam® is a FIBER FREE product. It is environment friendly and without the use of organic binder. During use no emissions of dust or vapors occur and there is no pulverization as caused by using aluminosilicate ceramic fiber, polycrystalline mullite fiber and alumina fiber.
Long lifetime, energy efficient and easy handling
Due to its high purity, high strength and great stability, Cerafoam® has an excellent erosion resistance capability resulting in a long life time compared to vacuum formed fiber board products. The low density, low thermal conductivity and low shrinkage of the product leads to less quantities of insulation material and layers resulting in costsavings and energy efficiency. The high strength of Cerafoam® in combination with its low density makes easy
handling and machining by CNC possible.
The excellent performance of Cerafoam® makes the product suitable for a wide range of application areas where high temperature, specific atmospheres and chemical circumstances are critical factors. Examples are ceramic, laboratory, dental, glass and aluminum industry.

Various types of Cerafoam®
Elicra offers various types of Cerafoam® board for high temperature furnace insulation:
CF2300, CF2600, CF2800, CF3000, CF3100 and CF998. Each type has its specific characteristics.
Maximum use temperature is depending on variables such as stresses, both thermal and mechanical, heating/cooling rate and the chemical environment that the material experiences. All technical data given herein are typical values obtained in accordance with accepted test methods and are subject to normal manufacturing variations. They are supplied as a technical service and are subject to change without notice (e.g. due to new raw materials or to technical development). Therefore, the data given herein should not be used for specification purposes.
Mounting of the panels
Elicra Cerafoam® products can easily be mounted in (existing) furnace linings. Information about the way of installing the panels in the furnace roof and/or wall is available on request.
